  • Foxconn’s climate goals approved by SBTi

    Foxconn Technology Group achieves a significant milestone in environmental sustainability by receiving approval from the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) for its net-zero emissions goal, making it a leader in Taiwan’s high-tech hardware industry. This commitment aligns with the Paris Agreement, aiming to limit global warming to 1.5˚C by reducing greenhouse gas emissions across its value chain by 2050.

  • IMO eyes carbon tax on shipping by 2027

    The United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) is contemplating a greenhouse gas emission tax on the maritime industry from 2027, potentially marking the first global sector to face a mandatory carbon fee. This tax aims to address the industry’s significant contribution to global emissions and could drive the adoption of eco-friendly practices among shipowners. The potential revenue of US$100 billion annually may also aid developing nations in combating climate change. Despite uncertainties surrounding the tax’s implementation and impact, IMO Secretary-General Arsenio Dominguez is resolute about establishing a pricing mechanism.

  • Taiwan initiates carbon credit trading for zero-carbon goals

    The Taiwan Carbon Solution Exchange (TCX) has launched international carbon credits trading, marking the start of a zero-carbon era. The Ministry of Environment (MOEV) is committed to achieving the net-zero goal and plans to implement carbon fees on businesses by 2024. Around 1,700 publicly traded companies in Taiwan will undergo carbon inspections within seven years, with those emitting 25,000 metric tons annually being the first to be taxed. However, the voluntary review report by the Climate Change Administration (CCA) revealed that three major greenhouse gas emission reduction goals were not met between 2020 and 2022, largely due to labor constraints. To accelerate progress, the CCA has doubled the number of inspection agencies from seven to 14 in the past two years.

  • Taichung university uses 3D printing for plant-based foods

    A technological university in Taichung has partnered with a biotech company to create plant-based food, such as vegetarian drumsticks and popcorn chicken, using mycoprotein and 3D printing technology. The product has garnered positive feedback for its realistic taste and texture. Plant-based food products are gaining popularity due to increasing environmental awareness, presenting a new opportunity in the vegetarian market. The university highlights the health and environmental benefits of consuming mycoprotein, which promotes gut health and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Replicating the taste and texture of real chicken meat was a challenging process that involved converting mycelium into strands of ’meat,’ but was successfully achieved through extensive research and the use of 3D digital technology.

  • Kaohsiung first in Taiwan to issue NT$2B green bonds

    Kaohsiung City Government’s Finance Bureau has become the first in Taiwan to be granted the qualification to issue green bonds, with a total amount of NT$2 billion. This move is expected to save on interest payments and enact sustainable environmental practices without increasing the city’s debt. The green bonds will fund green investment projects, encompassing renewable energy development, enhanced energy efficiency, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. These bonds, totaling NT$2 billion, will utilize their low, fixed interest rates to replace existing higher-interest bank loans, ensuring resources are invested in low-carbon construction. Under Mayor Chen Chi-mai’s leadership, the city has reduced its debt by NT$10.6 billion by the end of 2022, surpassing the goal of a NT$10 billion reduction. Kaohsiung aims to continue strengthening its financial and environmental sustainability and implement comprehensive net-zero policies as it works toward a 2050 net-zero goal.

  • Renewable energy becomes focus ahead of 2024 elections

    Presidential candidates in Taiwan have unveiled energy policies that prioritize renewable energy and low-carbon gas as bridging fuels. Taipower, the national power company, has announced plans to accelerate the construction of gas turbine units across the country. The Hsieh-Ho Power Plant, which supplies electricity to the northern region, is currently undergoing an environmental impact assessment. Shifting from oil to gas can reduce air pollution by 96% and greenhouse gas emissions by 52%. In recent years, the government, private sector, and Taipower have made significant efforts to increase the capacity of renewable energy devices. As of September this year, the cumulative capacity of photovoltaic installations exceeded 11.55 million kilowatts, and wind power reached 2,583,000 kilowatts. By prioritizing green energy and using gas, Taipower has reduced air pollution emissions from thermal power plants by 60%, dropping from approximately 107,000 metric tons in 2016 to about 42,000 metric tons in 2022.
